Earlier in the NBA season, the Indiana Pacers were literally a minute too late from acquiring the Memphis Grizzlies' O.J. Mayo for Josh McRoberts and a 2011 first-round draft pick.
Mayo has done an adequate job off the bench during the playoffs, but he hasn't lived up to expectations. I'm going to go ahead and say that's mostly because of Zach Randolph's growing stardom on the team though.
Memphis assumed Mayo and Marc Gasol would become a force to be reckoned with, but instead Mayo's become a bench player.
And to be honest, his scoring and lack of rebounding/assists can easily be replaced.
Maybe he can become a poor man's Brandon Roy, or maybe Memphis will trade him for a sack of peanuts. It all depends on what the Grizzlies are looking for to help the team become a title contender.
So here are some trade ideas I came up with for Memphis.
Just as a note for everyone, these were all deals done with ESPN's NBA Trade Machine, and because of the player options on contracts and other rules, my options were cut down to what they would of been prior to the trade deadline.
All of these deals would happen during the next NBA season, considering there is one.
